    Not sure that is maintained any longer. Saturn was always slow... Spectrum I never tried. Are you looking for an all in one emulator? If so try RetroArch.

    It is just one of those things, RA is like a huge emulation operating system that does it all where BH is an attempt to make an all in one emulator. There are problems with that so RA decided to make it modular. With RA you just need to set it all up and the best way to do that is to watch the youtub how to set up RA stuff. The setup IMO is not all that confusing because there are auto find game tools built in, you just need to do work before you play it. Once done, it is a press right for system, down for game. They use the Ps3 style GUI that I'm not a fan of but it works. Emulation station I think is a better direction.

    It comes down to this. You either want it simple and hope things work, or are wiling to learn a bit and make it all work. RA is a tool that will setup your controller, your roms, your emulators, and all the images in a nice little front end that in the end is a point and click tool to play a game. Ever second that goes by RA is being worked on by a team of over 200 developers. Where BH may get updated once every year (if it is even still updated).

    the last BizHawk update was on 6 January of these year(2019).
    the problem that i can see is just:
    1 - Sega Saturn is slow... and you had seen these... maybe theres another way to control these..( the Yabause emulator is with a normal speed);
    2 - i can't load Spectrum roms and i don't understand why

    i don't want use the RA, because isn't like i need and i must see how it works... at least the BizHawk is more easy to use... it's just load the rom... it can knows what is the emulator automatic.
    thank you so much for all

    i did, but stills slow and i don't know why...
    the BizHawk Sega Saturn needs a better computer?
    - i have nvidia geforce 103m 512(i think and go to RAM);
    - cpu duo 2.1GHz with 4MB's cache.
    - i use a SSD disk.
    or it's a configuration wrong for my computer?
